BOISE ST 33, WYOMING 17

9/28/2003

BOISE, Idaho (Ticker) -- Boise State hopes it started a new
winning streak.

Ryan Dinwiddie passed for 285 yards and four touchdowns as the
Broncos rebounded from their first loss of the season with a
33-17 victory over Wyoming.

Last week, Boise State (3-1) suffered a 26-24 loss at Oregon
State, ending its 13-game run, which had been the second-longest
active streak among Division I-A schools.

Casey Bramlet threw TD passes of 63 yards to Malcom Floyd and 41
yards to Josh Barge, helping Wyoming (1-4) take a 14-7 lead
early in the second period.

But Boise State scored 12 points in the final 68 seconds on the
first half, tying it on Dinwiddie's 23-yard TD strike to Donny
Heck. After a safety, Tyler Jones kicked a 22-yard field goal as
time expired to give the Broncos a 19-14 lead at the
intermission.

Dinwiddie, who completed 27-of-38 passes, threw TD passes of 23
yards to Derek Schouman and 16 yards to Jerry Smith in the
second half as Boise State won for the 14th time in its last 15
games.

Despite the early TDs, Bramlet was off the mark most of the
night for the Cowboys, completing just 15-of-34 passes for 241
yards. Wyoming was held to just 32 yards on the ground.

The Cowboys have dropped three in a row since a season-opening
win over Division I-AA Montana State.

Boise State won for the 28th time in its last 29 home games.
